December 2014

The Children's Room is implementing a new program to further promote early literacy.
 Beginning January 1st, your family can participate in 100 Books Before Age 1! This program is for children birth-age 1 and their parents or caregivers. Set up much like our popular Summer Reading Program, parents will log the books they read to their child, with a reading goal of 100 books.
 You can choose to log and keep track of your reading online or on paper reading logs.
 Every three months the Children's Room will hold a Celebratory Story Time and Playdate for those who have reached the goal. The 100 Books Before Age 1 program will be ongoing, and you can register and begin at any time.
Once you have reached the goal, you are welcome to continue to log reading who knows how many books you can reach by age 2!
See the Children's Room Staff with any questions, or email the Children's Librarian.

Library Mission Statement

The Northborough Free Library provides materials, space, access and opportunities for members of the community to learn and discover; to enrich their lives and further their personal goals; and to engage with others in a comfortable environment.


We've got new apps on the iPads!
 We are loaded up with apps for toddlers, and both younger and older elementary school kids.  A lot of these apps have learning elements, but we did add some games and interactive stories just for fun!
Come take a look! 

ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) RESOURCE SECTION
Check out our ASD Resource area!!  We have new books for kids and adults, fidget toys, game packets, and more...  Please stay tuned for our two brand new iPads loaded with special apps!!  These iPads will be available for use in the library!  (2 iPads provided by a grant from the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism - Allison Keller iPad Grant).

Be careful with audio books! They can be finicky!

For people with multi-disc players, occasionally a library CD will get stuck.  This is true, mostly, for multi-cd players installed in cars.  Please play at your own risk.  Thank you!

Each month we get many more calls than we have spots in Children's Programs.  Please remember, if you do not show up for a program, you have taken a spot away from another child who wanted to participate.
The Children's Staff asks that if you cannot attend a program you have signed up for you give us a call to let us know. 
If you do not show up for a monthly program, you will not be allowed to sign up for the same program the following month.
If you are a frequent "no-show", you may be held from signing up for more or future programs.
